Among the things you’d think that game companies would work on, you never thought Detective Conan would get a game that doesn’t even have you solve crimes. So say hi to the free-to-play mobile Detective Conan horizontal runner game, Race to the Truth.

I know it’s a bit on the nose, ain’t it?

So Race to the Truth has us retrace back previous Conan cases as you control Conan Edogawa on horizontal running stages trying to get points and jump through obstacles in the game. Typical to games like these, one of their draws is that you can actually see illustrations from the series plus a few original illustrations for the game (somewhere down the line).

Revisiting old cases in-game

The game will be released on both iOS and Android platforms in Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Germany, Chile, Mexico, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, France, Indonesia, Philippines, Spain, Brazil, Egypt, Italy, and Norway. While countries like the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Russia, and Sweden will have this game titled as Case Closed Runner: Race to the Truth.
